    Trustix developers discovered insecure temporary file creation in a
    supplemental script in the lvm10 package that didn't check for
    existing temporary directories, allowing local users to overwrite
    files via a symlink attack.
    
    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.4-5woody2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your lvm10 package.
